There are plenty of ways to find places in your area that sell computers. In fact, it's hard to pick up a Sunday newspaper without being inundated by flyers for local stores offering all sorts of technology. You could also look in your phone book, or log onto the Internet to find thousands of retailers.

The World Wide Web Is Your Neighborhood

You may want to visit a local brick-and-mortar store to examine different computers, try out keyboards or talk with a sales representative. But you should also remember that with the Internet at your fingertips, you can access any store, any sale, anywhere. Merchant websites also have several distinct advantages over conventional stores.

For one thing, comparison shopping is much easier. Brand sites allow you to compare series and models within their brand, offering comparison tables of specs. General sites offer the same easy-to-use tables to allow you to compare computers of several different brands. In an afternoon, you'll be able to compare more possibilities than you could in a week of going from store to store.

Price comparisons are also easier on the Net, and prices are generally lower. Internet merchants don't have the overhead of brick-and-mortar stores, since they don't have all the building upkeep, warehouses, and staff to maintain. Therefore they are able to pass their savings on to you. Using the Web to shop for computers can save you both time and money.
